The answer I received is: 7:03am, is that correct?

**Reiny**, Thursday, April 8, 2010 at 12:14amlet the time between 6:37 and the time B catches A be t hours

distance covered by A is (t + 12/60)(60)

distance covered by B is 80t

but they went the same distance, so ...

80t = 60(t + 1/5)

80t = 60t + 12

20t = 12

t = 3/5 hour of 36 minutes

so 36 min after 6:37 is 7:13
